Do I Need to Hire a local Roof Repair and Maintenance Contractor 'roofer'?

If your surveyor or builder has noted a potential problem with the structure, underlay or tiles of your roof, it’s time to call in a specialist. The importance of maintaining your roof can’t be overstated; any serious issues with roof structure can lead to leaks, mould and damage to fittings and furniture. It can even compromise your home security.

Having a roof maintenance contractor on your books is the best way to keep your roof in shape. Whether your roof is made from lead, slate or tiles, proper and regular maintenance will save you from having to fork out the considerable expense of emergency breakdown repairs. This will also allow you to properly plan your annual house maintenance budget in advance, giving you peace of mind.

What Do Roofers near me Do?

A roof repair and maintenance expert will:

  • Identify roof damage: A roof repair contractor is trained to spot any and all potential issues, from cracked tiles to missing underlay and more serious structural issues with beams.
  • Design a roof maintenance plan: The roof maintenance service will ensure that your roof is watertight and in good condition, and devise a maintenance plan for keeping it so, protecting your home and maintaining its value. This should also include regular inspection and maintenance of gutters, cladding, insulation and more.
  • Pipe repair and tile replacement: Roof maintenance includes the sealing of all damaged pipes and vents, replacement of blown-off shingles, replacement of tiles that are missing or broken and any other important upkeep work that needs to be done.
